New Release: Nestle-Aland 28th Edition (NA28)

We are excited to announce that we just released the 28th Edition of the Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament. The Nestle-Aland is the leading critical edition of the Greek New Testament used by scholars and seminary students all over the world. The 28th edition makes significant changes to the apparatus and uses the Editio Critica Maior as its basis for the Catholic letters (James, 1 and 2 Peter, 1-3 John, and Jude), so these letters will have textual differences from the NA27.

Here are some details from the publisher on the changes they've made in this latest edition.

  • Newly discovered Papyri listed
  • Distinction between consistently cited witnesses of the first and second order abandoned
  • Apparatus notes systematically checked
  • Imprecise notes abandoned
  • Previously concatenated notes now cited separately
  • Inserted Latin texts reduced and translated
  • References thoroughly revised
  • New reconstruction of the Catholic Letters
  • Defining the Consistently Cited Witnesses for the Catholic Letters

Accordance Edition

We have also put significant work into the Accordance edition in order to make it easier to use, navigate, and search. Check out the First Look video below to see how the NA28 looks in Accordance.

I assume that if we want to have both the NA27 module as well as the updated NA28 that upgrading will not overwrite the previous edition. Is that correct?

Yes, you can use both texts side by side if you own them.

I am deeply impressed with the Accordance NA28, both graphically-pedagogically and technically! Congratulations to an amazing effort!

The price for which this module is sold is regrettable—to say the least. What could have been a great opportunity at producing an affordable electronic text ends up being an unnafordable tool, which will surely be surpassed by the competing electronic versions—only to increase the level of annoyance of those Accordance users who can't enjoy all the blessings of the Western world. Very sad indeed!

As Darin says above, both the publishers and our developers have invested considerable time and effort in this module.

If you appreciate the extra value that you get by having the module fully searchable, integrated, portable, and exportable, we hope that you will consider that it is well worth the cost.
